Classic black and white with Annalise

Back in photo school I realized how much could be done with just one light, in fact I did my whole graduation portfolio in the studio with one light. Back then I was the only person in the class who enjoyed shooting with the old Agfa 25. In the studio it was great, I could shoot with my 35 mm and still get images I could blow up to 11x14 without hardly any grain.
These days I still try to keep things as simple as possible. With this shot I worked a small (1x2') softbox with an SB-800 in as close as possible camera right. Shot with my 17-55 at f/2.8 to get that nice shallow depth of field.
More to come with Annalise.
